URSS To Host Sprint Car Driving Seminar 

Many people have asked for it…so here it is !! If you are a current or past race driver thinking of moving up to sprint cars and just want to know if you like them, or an avid fan who would like to experience what it feels like to drive a true race ready sprint car…then get ready !!!   

Saturday April 20th, the United Rebel Sprint Series will host a true sprint car seminar and driving experience at the WaKeeney Speedway in WaKeeney, KS. This seminar will include a morning class on proper maintenance, setup tips, driving tips and a range of other topics related to sprint cars. Following the class, each entrant will take their turn at 15 laps in a race ready sprint car. We will provide race ready cars, race ready track and the proper insurance to make your driving experience one to remember for a lifetime. You must provide for yourself an approved helmet, fire suit, gloves and shoes, although, if you can’t come up with these, contact officials before April 20 with your size as we will have a few on hand we can loan you.  

The class portion of the seminar starts at 9am and will be taught by the one and only “Kansas Tornado” Jon Johnson with driving tips provided by him and several other veteran drivers. 

Cost for this seminar is only $200 and only the first 50 entrants will be able to participate. All entrants will have to be pre-registered and pre-paid and will be taken on a first come-first serve basis, so get your registration in as early as possible to secure your spot.  If driving a sprint car is on your “bucket list” the time is now !!!

Belleville, Dodge City and Hays Highlight URSS 2019 Tentative Schedule 

The United Rebel Sprint Series, going into its 14th season, has released its tentative 2019 Schedule and for the second year in a row the 2nd Annual Belleville 305 Nationals will be the highlight of the season with its $7000 to win/$1000 to start finale.  

Series founder, Rick Salem, is still working on a few more dates with area tracks so look for this schedule to expand.  

Highlighting the season will be the 2nd Annual Belleville 305 Nationals on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Aug 1st, 2nd and 3rd , with Thursday being a practice night for new drivers to become acclimated to the high banks. Friday nights' feature will pay $2500 to the winner with Saturday finale paying a whopping $7000 to the winner with a minimum $1000 to start the A feature. Also the Thayer County Speedway in Deshler, NE will host the Rebels on Wednesday night, July 31st,  to make a great 4 day weekend for the traveling teams.  

Another highlight of the season will be a three day show at Dodge City Raceway Park in Dodge City, KS for the 3rd Annual Lubbuck Wrecker Service DCRP Sprint Car Nationals on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, June 13th, 14th and 15th. This promises to get bigger each year as not only the DCRP Sprints and the URSS Sprints, but the Sprint Series of Oklahoma will also be on hand vying for the $3000 to win with $600 to start Saturday nights' feature event. 

For the 11th year the Annual Wheatshocker Nationals will be held at RPM Speedway in Hays, KS on Saturday and Sunday, July 13th and 14th with $2000 going to the Sunday night feature winner. This has been a staple on the URSS Schedule for many years and look for this year to bring the best of the best. 

The Rebels will also visit a few new tracks this year with a scheduled date at Soloman Valley Speedway’s ¼ mile oval in Beloit,  KS on Saturday July 27th. This date will make 4 races in 8 days combined with Deshler and Belleville for traveling teams wanting to get a full week of racing in. Also a tentative date is scheduled at the blistering fast 3/8 high banked track at Thunder Hill Speedway in Mayetta, KS on Saturday July 6th. With a race scheduled at the Belleville High Banks on July 4th, URSS officials are currently working with area tracks to secure a date on the 5th to make a three day 4th of July weekend. 

As stated before, URSS officials are still working with a few other tracks to secure additional dates and they will be announced when completed.

A Word From The Series Founder

 

Welcome to our United Rebel Sprint Series official web site. With the growing support of committed competitors and supporting tracks, an affordable sprint car series is now full throttle.  We are now booking dates to area race tracks that will bring back affordable Sprint Car Racing to promoters and participants alike.  This series bottom line is affordable open wheel racing... period.  We have got to keep the costs down on this class to insure it's growth and make it a profitable opportunity for track promoters.  Thus making this series a winner for everyone  ....  including the fans.

 

With our pay structure of $500 to win and $125 to start the main, it is designed to bring new competitors into the series and make it feasible to travel to the area tracks insuring full fields.  We have adopted a set of rules and feel they are a great set of rules to keep the costs low and the competition close. By enforcing them we can keep it affordable to all.  This series has the potential to grow like wild fire and is a great concept to keep open wheel racing alive to all competitors and racetracks. I want to thank you all for your interest and the overwhelming support most have shown for this series.

 

Please feel free to contact me at any time for more information.
